Where does Promises to Keep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best I've read in a long while, and as good as Tatlock's I'll Watch the Moon or All the Way Home.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Promises to Keep?

The last few chapters were great, but could only have been so because Tatlock wove such a gripping story with such great characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

Tilly to the rescue! I'll not give it away.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Too many to mention.

Any additional comments?

I love the warmth of Barbara Caruso, and often buy a book because of her reading. She obviously pays close attention to the characters in the books she narrates, which is a bonus for the listener.
